As Europe declines, will it take Britain with it?

Here Mark Steyn tackles the inevitable decline in Europe as that continent abandons the basic societal glue of religion, family and work, and questions whether England will disengage herself from this free fall. Because I love Steyn's writing so much, let me share with you here is point about the separation of sex and religion in England (and elsewhere):

[W]hat's at issue is not which of us is getting more and better casual sex but whether it's an appropriate organising principle for society. Or at any rate whether a cult of non-procreative self-gratification is, as the eco-crazies like to say, "sustainable".
He is, of course, right, and he manages to say it with such style....
